We are canine friendly. Dogs are always welcome in the garden on a lead. If your dog is well behaved then we’re happy for you to have him (or her) on a lead in some of our dining areas (please mention when booking). We do ask that you keep your dog out of the way as we hope you appreciate that dogs are not everyone’s cup of tea.

We look forward to welcoming you at The Crown soon.

Book an outside dining table complying with the rule of 6 or 2 households rule online from 16th April (weekends only) or an inside dining table complying with the rule of 6 or 2 households from 17th May:
